Come to me she whispers. Let your soft body remember my ways.
Do you love the Sea? Is she calling to you?
SáilSpeak, pronounced 'seaspeak' is all about our soul's yearning for the Sea. The song of the sea flows through us. She is calling for us to reach out to her in reverence and to know her once more - to hear her song in our soul.
Here at SáilSpeak we answer her call,
we hear her song and we dive in!
Sáil = 'Sea' in Scots Gaelic
She's calling me!
I tell people I have salt flowing thru my veins. It's true! Growing up on Cape Cod into a family of sailors and boat lovers will do that to you.
When I was just 3-weeks old my parents rowed me out to my cousin's sailboat to have dinner. Then a mere 5 years later I can recall lying down on the bow of my family's Herreshoff Bulleye as we sailed along feeling the sea breeze on my face and the boat rising and falling with the swells rolling in from the sea. Those days were pure bliss to me. How I loved getting back home after a day of sailing all salty and sun-kissed. These memories are etched into my soul.
Sailing gave me confidence and taught me patience and partnership. Perhaps most importantly it brought me right into the heart of nature's beauty. Through sailing I learned to respect the sea's power and the winds force - I learned how I fit in and what the sea was capable of.
I fell hook, line and sinker!
Yes, my work has me deeply intertwined with the landscape, and I have a deep love for trees, stones, birds, animals, rivers, ponds, mountains, sky... the list goes on. But, my love for the Sea is profound. It feels familial to me. Ask any of my friends and they'll agree with me when I say I am always yearning for the Sea, to be out there in that mystical watery world. My True North is towards the Sea wherever she may be.
My earliest dream was to have my own sailboat and a few years ago that dream came true! I encourage everyone, especially women and girls to get out on the water. It is our natural energetic frequency. When we're on the water we reconnect with the core of who we are and remember our essence.
Your Selkie Soul
